Forum: forums Subject: Stuck/Broken Derive Tasks

The following three books have been stuck on their derive tasks since the end of last week. Can you please fix this problem? Do you know what causes this?

Thanks

The two others were fixed, but this one is still stuck/broken.

Now this one is doing it too: http://archive.org/details/FishCommunitiesWithinFlowerGardenBanksNms

Do you know what is causing this to happen so I can prevent it instead of bothering you guys every time?

it's fixed now. the nature of your publications make processing the derive formats more difficult. some of the images have very fine grain random patterns that are difficult to process at our default resolution of 600ppi.

Please send an email to my attention at info@archive.org and i can explain how you can fix items that fail.

thanks.

I sent you an email so I'll wait for your reply that way, but this seems to be the faster way to get in touch with you so alas it has happened again here:

Can you fix this one?

I thought it would be easier with smaller files but apparently it can happen with any size PDF.

Thanks

i'll send you an email with a fix. it has to do with the complex and fine grain details in the images. it overwhelms the derivers at the standard hi-res ppi we use so a mod to the ppi needs to be made.

i did it again on this one for you.
